I'm in the ancient capital of Ayutthaya again. This time, following the trail of a friend, a sweet-toothed me found myself climbing the famous Prang of Wat Ratchaburana, where most of Ayutthaya's major treasures were looted and then retrieved. With the misery deaths of the thieves, of course.
Ayutthaya - the ancient capital of Siam - is only a stone's throw from Bangkok, making it a perfect day-trip destination. Here is my half-day itinerary that will take you off the beaten track but still immersive with the city's historical charms to prove there are a lot more to explore over there.
